A deputy in Colorado has been placed on unpaid administrative leave following an incident at a high school career fair.
Unable to release the name of the deputy he/she is accused of using a stun gun on 30 students.
According to officials for Lake County High School, the students asked to be shocked so they would know what it felt like. The end result left two students that had to be treated for minor burns ,but have since been released from the hospital.
Betty Kokenes, school Superintendent, claims that she was unaware of the fact that the officer was using the gun on the students and it wasn’t an authorized.
So, does that mean it had the potential to actually be authorized and it would have been fine?
Officials of the Sheriff’s department have stated that the incident should have never gone down.
As of now, the case has been turned over to the district attorney’s office and from there it will be decided if charges need to be pursued.
Okay Colorado, wasn’t aware that police brutality could actually be so voluntary. Appreciate the new knowledge.
